In "Dora and Me/Yo Soy Dora" Amy Urbina brings to life two bright actresses who connect across the centuries to tell a surprising and captivating story. The tension between these two women's characters, masterfully performed by Urbina, highlight and contrast the challenges to finding happiness that everyone in the audience can recognize.

If you are looking to open you heart, engage in fascinating untold tales, and laugh hysterically, go see the Doras!... full review
